@Papagator62 .

The CMD or PowerShell window should open "as Administrator".

* For Windows 10 and 8.1:

wmic path softwarelicensingservice get OA3xOriginalProductKey

If the key is not stored in the UEFI or BIOS, it will return the following message:

Node: NAME-DE-PC
Mistake:
Description = Invalid query

* For Windows 10, 8.1, 7 and Vista:

powershell "(Get-WmiObject -query 'select * from SoftwareLicensingService').OA3xOriginalProductKey"

To activate windows 8/8.1, try following the instructions in the link:
